Calling All LA Foodies: You Won’t Want To Miss This Bash

Two of LA’s best chefs (Nancy Silverton of Mozza and Roy Choi of Kogi BBQ) will team up with the big names behind Paris’ top-rated restaurants (Inaki Aizpitarte of Le Chateaubriand, Grégory Marchand of Frenchie) for the first ever Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris-LA 2013, a two-day food festival outside of the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA on April 26th and 27th.imageThe tasty spectacular is hosted by Le Fooding, an insider-y culture and culinary guide that chronicles the French foodie scene with a supremely cool, “what-to-know-now” point of view. (Think if Anthony Bourdain edited New York Magazine.) So it’s no wonder they planned this event with the same avant-garde approach they use in their essential restaurant guides.

With commemorative T-shirts designed by Shepard Fairey and French street artist André Saraiva and a portion of proceeds benefitting the LA Food Bank, it’s a soirée with so much more than cross-coastal food.

Tickets range from $50 to $125, and are available here. (A small price to pay for the closest you’ll get to visiting Paris for the night.)
